Countdown to Chicago’s Eclipse 2017

Tomorrow, August 21, 2017 at around 11:54am, the biggest event is about to happen when the Moon will start to block Chicago’s view of the Sun!

I have seen different eclipses when I was in the Philippines but this time I am so excited because we’re going to witness a total solar eclipse!

 

There are viewing areas to see the eclipse: at the Alder Planetarium, Daley Plaza, Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and in Perryville, MO.

We got our free solar eclipse glasses at Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago and there are free outdoor activities like block party and educational talks with experts and Astronomers!

 

 

Go to this website for more information about Chicago Solar Eclipse:

You can also watch the eclipse through my blog. Here’s the live feed from ABC7 Chicago.

WARNING!!!! 

Make sure your Solar eclipse glasses were purchased from reputable and accredited vendors. I heard fake solar eclipse glasses were sold online. You can verify from Adler’s website if the glasses are safe to use.

Multi-awarded LG G5 and Friends “play” their way to the Philippines

Glamour Moments team is so happy to witnessed the unveiling of new LG G5 last April 28, 2016 held at Shangri-la at the Fort Taguig.

LG G5 sports is the brand’s first-ever Modular type design, encase in a sleek metal aluminum body and a Slide-out Batter which can easily swap a depleted battery with a fully charged one.

I am very fond of the LG’s new TVC here in the United States. I don’t even recognize Jason Statham at first glance because He portrays so different characters in the TVC and I’m not sure if He is the real one 😛 LOL

During the launch, LG also introduces its “friends” namely LG Cam Plus, LG Hi-FI Plus with B&O Play, LG 360 VR, LG 360 Cam, LG Rolling Bot, LG Tone PlatinumTM, H3 by B&O Play, and the hub application called LG Friends Manager.

LG G5 is available in the Philippines in gray, titan, gold and pink with a retail price of PHP 34,990.00. Check out the official page of LG and follow @LGPhilippines on Twitter and Instagram.

Review on Majestic’s Backlink Checker

It’s been a long time since I posted about SEO tools and gave a detailed review. Somehow, it motivated me to write today because this website is giving away a 13-inch Apple MacBook Air this Thanksgiving. Okay, am not after the prize (that’s true!) but I wanted to give you a step by step analysis on how we use Majestic.

I’ve been working with this industry for almost 8 years (whew!), I witnessed the importance of using SEO tools in our daily lives, we called them “lifesavers” or “early warning detectors.”

Step 1: Go to https://majestic.com/. Register and Create your Free Account using your Email Address.

Whether your website is new or old, it is a mandatory that you perform a diagnostics specially checking the backlinks. We didn’t know that “some” harmful links hurt our Search Engine performance and rankings. If we didn’t perform or analyze your website Analytics or run a backlink checker, you will not be able to catch “spam referrals” or “malicious” links injected to your website. I am a victim of “spam referrals” and Google Analytics helped me to “filter out” them and I reported these websites to permanently remove them on my backlinks.

How you will know if the website tool you’re using is trusted? First, you must investigate
through reading website reviews or recommendation coming from reputable SEO/Webmaster sites/blog. A perfect example is in Search Engine Watch or SEO Moz. Secondly, if you have stumbled upon this website and tested it. If you are comfortable with the results then it shows that the tool is effective. Aside from trust, some tools offer a “FREE” subscription. This is for you to test it and if you feel you want more then you have the chance to upgrade your subscription to get premium or custom services.

  2. Create your Free Account using your Email Address
  3. Then, you may start performing diagnostics

Sneak Peak: Pac-Man and Arcade Gaming inspired Restaurant at Level 257

20150716_181324

I saw this signage ‘Level 257’ outside when traveling from Rosemont to Schaumburg.

I don’t even know that this place exists until I read from its official blog, http://level257chicago.tumblr.com/ that the place is already opened.

We love playing Pac-Man since we’re young and I even remembered that there was a burger place in Caloocan named after this game character (LOL).

Also Namco games were there. I saw Mappy and Galaga – my two most fave games!

20150716_181904 20150716_182240

Level 257 is located at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois. My mistake yesterday was we entered Sears which is adjacent to Young Mens section exit to the mall wherein we can exit near Stir Krazy (Sowee, it’s Google Maps fault!).

With the theme, “To play is human”

Then the entrance door welcomed us with this quote saying:

“Life is like a level of Pac-Man to move forward you must keep playing”

Here are some of the snapshots I took from my phone. We will back next time to play, eat and have fun….!!!
